one anniversary on the heels of another, and thanks for all the good wishes! i’ve been blogging two years and in celebration… i actually finished one of my christmas gifts!
my dad’s socks.
lorna’s laces shepherd sock doubled
knit picks solid sock yarn doubled
i wanted to make my dad squishy thick socks, since he’s cold like me… but i also wanted the nylon content, so i compromised. and i must say, it is SUCH pain to hold two strands together, but especially if they’re a thin wool. ah well, they’re done and i like them quite a bit.
other perils? made the tops too long and had to rip them both back so i could steal some of the yarn from the cuff. grrr. and one is two rows shorter than the other.
hilariously, i knit these magic loop on interchangeable needles – one size 4 needle and one size 5 needle, which i discovered at the end of course :) ha!
one hat to go and then into the mail with these!
p.s. thanks so much for reading these two years. if you’re noticing some bumpy roads on this blog this month, you’re not imagining things. we’re on to new things over here called full time fiber artist. no yarn store job. no cleaning job. just me. yipes! and perhaps a seatbelt would help ;)
